Location: West Medina

West of the Medina is the center of the city of Marrakech, positioned between the center of the Medina and the center of Gueliz. It includes the neighborhoods of Bab Doukkala, Arset Ihiri, Riad Laarouss and Sidi Bouamer.

Bab Doukkala is the west gate of the Medina.

Built in 18th century, it is a protective doors of the Medina.

It is also the door that gives direct access to Gueliz, the modern city.

A magnificent project was voted recently (2015): to transform 38 urban hectares into green spaces, like the Ramblas in Barcelona, playful gardens, underground parking, shopping area … A great green corridor between Bab Doukkala and the Majorelle Gardens. The land of the wholesale market of the city already discarded and development work has begun. It remains to move the road guard, and the entire area will be free for this major project. This should also relieve traffic this side of the medina.

Nice gains in perspective for the lucky owners of riads, renovated riads, non renovated riads and guest houses and boutique hotels of this side of the medina of Marrakech.

The Bab Doukkala neighborhood that hides behind this majestic gate is a beautiful area. Beautiful palaces and riads there were built between the 18th and 19th century. These ancient traditional houses full of character and charm were renovated in the 2000s and preserved in their original architectural features. Riad Dar Vedra, Riad Denise Masson, the Riad Maison Bleu or Maison Arabe are some famous examples.

A fresh fruit and vegetable market, meat and fish as well as breads and Moroccan pancakes is held daily in front of the Bab Doukkala. A feast for the eyes but also for the taste buds. Bab Doukkala is both a beautiful area and a neighborhood where local life continues to fly its ground. Many small restaurants offer very cheap everyday simple dishes of Moroccan cuisine: lentils, Bissara, fried fish …

Bab Doukkala extends from the door to the Palace Dar el becha.
